EDUC 8640 - The Learning-Centered Institution


(6 sem. cr.) Institutions of higher education exist to create learning that is achieved by students, pursued through scholarship, and developed in the daily practice of faculty members and staff. The concepts of the learning institution, which place learning at the center of all of its programs, services, and operations, are introduced in this course. Through the exploration of the learning-centered institution, education professionals gain a foundation for the EdD with a specialization in Higher Education Leadership. Through participation in course activities, they develop facility with Walden University’s online learning environment and understanding of the university’s and the program’s support systems, expectations, and outcomes; knowledge about the field, which they synthesize with reflection on their own experience and goals; and doctoral-level critical-thinking and writing skills.
